About Us

My experience when first beginning selecting alpacas for the ranch, taught me that the quality of the breeder's breeding stock would determine the quality of any resulting herd. With that important factor, Alpaca Country Estates began looking for exceptional herdsires that would build excellent genetics into the breeding program.

Along with Michelle Ing, DVM, who I make reference to as "one of the top camelid veterinarians in California", Michelle's husband, Steve, and myself together purchased in 2009 some of the best black Snowmass genetics for our ranches.

With the most essential ingredient for future success, we added four elite, ultra-fine, quality males producing black offspring. For those who need to add proven genetics of fineness, brightness, and handle to their herd, you will appreciate the Royal Blacks from Snowmass available right here in California. Each male is the perfect package with wonderful bone density and structure, compact conformation, outstanding bite, incredible temperament, and silky soft fineness.

These magnificent boys' sires are names you will recognize....Snowmass Nova, Snowmass Royal Bronze, Snowmass Andean Night, and Snowmass Nova's Private Reserve. You will definitely want to take a look at our herdsires.

For those who don't know me, I do everything in a big way, giving my all to any task. The little herd of four females that was the beginning vision of my late husband, Keith, has grown into the hundreds, with many females pregnant by one of these outstanding Snowmass herdsires; our Danko son, Patagonia's Darwin; or our incredible PPPeruvian Cahuide offspring.

Now the ranch is bursting at the seams, and I want to share my endeavors with others - at fair market prices. The ranch is always opened for visitors, and every spring and fall we are slated to have a production and foundation sale.  For additional information, you may email at or phone at (209) 202-9504.
